South African wedding | Lad & Lass Wedding Photography | 100 Layer Cake

Rabbits, upside down hanging ferns, T. Rex’s, and confetti bags. If those are some of your favorite things and you’ve ever wondered how to work them into your wedding decor, this is the wedding that will show you how it’s done. They’re actually all elements that represent Tharien + Fred in some way, and it’s adoring to see how they included them throughout their pretty wedding venue, Poortjie Saal in Johannesburg.

Their music: Tharien walked down the isle to Mendelssohn’s Wedding march (performed on an electric organ, by a close friend). And their first dance was to Miike Snow’s, Animal (it was the first song they ever listened to together, the night they met).
